The author's odyssey through the austere yet beautiful shortgrass prairie offers stories of connection to the land. Part nature lore, part history, part meditation, this narrative reveals an intricately woven landscape of wildlife, plants, and people. To look beyond the open space, to truly know a prairie and its secrets, the author learns to look inward, and to see with more than her eyes. She discovers places within herself that she never knew existed and finds that, despite the changing face of the plains, the prairie's lesson remains the same: As we learn to appreciate this subtle, hard-to-love land, we come to value ourselves.
